Seven character photos from "Man of Steel" have surfaced online, and they're notable because not one of them features Superman (okay, Clark Kent is in one of them). It's appropriate that the "Man of Steel" marketing has centered squarely on Superman and his archnemesis General Zod, but that's left characters like both of Superman's sets of parents and essential supporting characters like Perry White out of the spotlight.
These photos, which popped up on Twitter, come from a movie tie-in book of some sort, as evidenced by the quick bios each character receives. The scans also give us a clear look at Christopher Meloni's Colonel Hardy and Ayelet Zurer's Lara Lor-Van. You can check out the full images below.
